Tintin et Moi
Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.
Tintin et Moi explores the appeal and style of a legendary European comic strip and character through extensive interviews with artist Herge (the pen name of Georges Remi).
Cosponsored by Ohio State's Cartoon Research Library as part of its year-long event "Storytelling 2007: A Celebration of Graphic Narrative."
As recognizable in Europe as Superman or Mickey Mouse in the U.S., the character of Tintin appeared in print across Europe for more than five decades beginning in 1929. Tintin et Moi draws on 14 hours of interviews conducted in 1971 with Herge, who created the comic strip The Adventures of Tintin. The film examines the artist's signature graphic style, as well as the unparalleled popularity of the Tintin character and his fantastic adventures set around the world. (75 mins, video)
